Fire Country (Country Saga #1) by David Estes

Fire Country (Country Saga #1) by David Estes
This is a young adult dystopian novel (Rated R)
(FIve Fantastic Hearts)
Book Summary
In a changed world where the sky bleeds red, winter is hotter than hell and full of sandstorms, and summer's even hotter with raging fires that roam the desert-like country, the Heaters manage to survive, barely.

Due to toxic air, life expectancies are so low the only way the tribe can survive is by forcing women to procreate when they turn sixteen and every three years thereafter. It is their duty as Bearers.

Fifteen-year-old Siena is a Youngling, soon to be a Bearer, when she starts hearing rumors of another tribe of all women, called the Wild Ones. They are known to kidnap Youngling girls before the Call, the ceremony in which Bearers are given a husband with whom to bear children with.

As the desert sands run out on her life's hourglass, Siena must uncover the truth about the Wild Ones while untangling the web of lies and deceit her father has masterfully spun.
My Review
Wow, this book blew my breath away. It had everything I wanted in a book. I’m confused about which series of David’s I love more. The Dwellers or this one. I will say as much as I love Adele and Tristan (and their circumstances were quite different), I love the relationship between Sienna and Circ. It was just, amazing.
The story had me on an emotional runaway train. There were highs and lows and everything in between.  Siena was a strong character which much to lose and little to gain, yet she did what needed to be done when needed. She’s the kind of character I admire. And it’s been a long time since I felt this way. (Rose from Vampire Academy the only other one).
There are many lessons to learn and several characters to love and an equal number to hate. It will be interesting to see where this series goes. I absolutely can’t wait.
